Hi NEWBIE911, welcome to the Forum,
I'm sorry but for sure your Mobo isn't compatible with the HeatSInk Pal8045 (check it here) so I suppose that is the same with the Swiftech MC462A.

You can modify the heatsinks, however, to fit, as long as you have a hacksaw and vise. This does void the warranty, howver (how the hell are yo going to break a heatsink anyhow???)

Usually people will work around if it doesn't fit. In this case in the thread you've see people used files etc.

Before my slot computer died I had a Volcano 6cu+ I was planning to put on the slotket I had to cut down maybe 2-3cm because it was coming in contact with the chipset.

You can hacksaw or get a machine sandpaper thingy I don't know what it's called
